The anime industry has brought us a variety of “game” type anime’s , SAO, Accel World, Log Horizon, Btooom!. To be frank it is getting to the point that game anime’s are becoming so overplayed that they are starting to become a little mundane. Kakegurui, which aired July 1st, 2017 during the summer. This anime may be a game anime, but it definitely had a different vibe to it in my opinion. With 12 episodes each being about 24 minutes long be ready for psychological mind-screw to the brain. I personally believe this anime excel, and surpass other game like anime’s, because of it different approach. In this blog I am going to give you a quick little breakdown of the anime/manga. Why?! Because this is all a build up to some pretty big news that some of you may, or may not know
Summary: Unlike many schools, attending Hyakkaou Private Academy prepares students for their time in the real world. Since many of the students are the children of the richest people in the world, the academy has its quirks that separate it from all the others. By day, it is a normal school, educating its pupils in history, languages, and the like. But at night, it turns into a gambling den, educating them in the art of dealing with money and manipulating people. Money is power; those who come out on top in the games stand at the top of the school.
Yumeko Jabami, a seemingly naive and beautiful transfer student, is ready to try her hand at Hyakkaou’s special curriculum. Unlike the rest, she doesn’t play to win, but for the thrill of the gamble, and her borderline insane way of gambling might just bring too many new cards to the table. [Written by MAL Rewrite]
